Forum coding progress

Postby Saint Soul » Tue Sep 11, 2012 12:21 am

Its been a week and two days since i took up this challenge and so far all i have is a new background without those two dudes and some color changes.

this ofcourse is after three days of learning Adobe cs6 and what areas of the code i was working with(whole site).

THIS IS ALSO A THE ONLY PLACE FROM NOW ON I WILL TAKE SUGGESTIONS FOR SITE CHANGES AND CONSIDER THEM.

If you'd like to discuss general changes to the forum that AREN'T related to code, talk about them in this thread!

No point in removing them really. You need some art. It doesn't have to be them, but it does tie into what the site is officially supposed to be.

As long as we keep Grim Tales and that nonsense off the side panels I'm happy.

We should put characters from Snafu-Comics's most well known comic book series that are ongoing right now.

But yeah, not too many images. Never works well unless they somehow manage to flow.

Colors and lines usually seem best to me.

If that's the case we should just make Fummo's illustration of himself the side panels. We don't need people getting fatter heads than they already have.

Done. Off-topic posts will be removed.

It's probably a good idea to keep this thread limited to what you're working on coding, with more general discussion about changes going here instead. What do you want suggestions on now?

There has been some discussion among mods about using this color, with the rationale that it is visible but not conspicuous, and that a probationary color shouldn't make the probated person look cool. But then, there are other options for that. I like a neutral grey for its ability to not be conspicuous if subforums have different color schemes.

Could I see some of your progress, Soulchild? Of all the people who have actually talked about making changes to the forum, I have yet to see anyone produce even a sample.

For those who haven't seen it, I've done some very light CSS changes, which you can see here. This is just a sample I threw together for Riz.

Here's a suggestion. I don't know how tricky this would be, but could each comic be represented by a smaller icon, and when you hover your mouse cursor over *just* the area of the icon, it expands and has the comic's title and artist(s) in the picture, then you move your cursor away or to another icon, and it shrinks back, and so on? Or would that be too complicated for too little aesthetic?

EDIT: Or maybe a viewing pane in the middle with the phrase "Please select a comic" and when you hover over one, it shows the comic's picture and details in it? Something like that.

That would require a little bit of a flash feature on the forum. Despite sounding nice tidy and simple, it is difficult to do without somebody skilled in the field.

Yeah, that's a bit high level and that CAN be done with php but considering we can only manage the forum template and not the site's infrasctructure, there are some things that can't be changed.

You might be able to do it using the CSS hover feature. But it wouldn't look smooth at all.
